My 3rd Friar--lightweight & accommodates my short

I just love the Friar! After searching for a quality leather purse that's lightweight and the right size for essentials + tablet--while accommodating my height (I'm only 5'1", and Friar's strap length fits me perfectly), Hobo's Friar is my winner! Its structured style looks classic, yet stylish--makes it easy to locate my belongings. It has enough compartments to organize but not lose my stuff. The variety of color choices made it fun to gift myself with now 3 Friars--almost one for each season. Purchased the granite color this time, a lovely deep neutral with cute teal floral lining. Great quality, reasonable price, lightweight, practical styling have made this my favorite!

Bottom line:
YES, I would recommend this to a friend

The Hobo brand has been a favorite for many years, and Friar does not disappoint. It's size is a wonderful compromise on current trends toward tiny and huge. I've had mine for almost 2 years and it still looks brand new even though it's carried often. Mine is one of the two snake patterns and is gorgeous inside and out, with a tailored look. It holds everything I need plus more including my Samsung 8" tablet in the outer slip pocket! It's fairly narrow so at first I thought it wouldn't hold much—thankfully I was wrong. It holds the same items that I put in a much larger "hobo" bag. Hooray for Friar! I came to this site today to find and purchase another Friar for summer, casual use but sadly I am dissuaded by the lining choice. For my preference, the lining is horribly distracting and a mismatch for the style. If the lining doesn't bother you, this is a fabulous purse that works on all levels. Go for it!

YES, I would recommend this to a friend

This was a gift but I chose it. I love Hobo bags for their design. They obviously think about how a person would use the bag. The lining -always lovely - is a nice detail that allows items in the bag be seen. But the detail I absolutely love is that the name Hobo is not obvious on the outside of the bag. I don't enjoy being an advertisement for a brand. Once you fall in love with Hobo bags you can always spot them. It's the well designed bag in beautiful leather that's going incognito! Tres chic!

Perfect every day bag

This handbag is the perfect size for every day use. It's not so large it will collect all kinds of random items so you feel like you are literally a hobo, yet you don't have to have a Ph.D. in spatial design to fit your basic necessities in it. I love that it has a cell phone pocket on the outside (this should be mandated by law), plus a zipper pocket for keys and other small items you like to keep handy. The inner slip pockets and zipper pocket (a must) are well sized and functional, which isn't always the case even with HOBO bags. This handbag is perfectly proportioned for someone petite (many are just too oversized, and particularly too wide for someone small and slim), but I think it would work equally well for someone taller and larger. I first saw this at a store and was astonished that I could fit everything in it that I had in my larger bag, with room to spare. Magic! If Online Shoes had carried the Garnet color, I would probably have (immoderately) purchased it along with the black one; it's gorgeous. I preferred the red/white lining pictured with the black leather, but the cheery sort of Japanese print lining is nice, too.
